Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation

Energy, transport, environment, competitiveness, innovation - Europe today is up against extraordinary challenges but also great opportunities.

To deliver efficiently high-quality European funding schemes and initiatives in these areas, the European Commission has set up the Executive Agency for Competitiveness & Innovation (EACI) to manage on its behalf:



We are an international team of specialists on energy, the environment, business support, multi-modal transport, communication and finance.

Our team includes both European Commission officials and professionals coming from the private sector. They all share a commitment to the European way of linking competitiveness and innovation with environmental protection and a cleaner energy future.

The EACI reports back to the following four Directorates-General of the European Commission: Energy (ENER), Mobility and Transport (MOVE), Enterprise and Industry (ENTR) and Environment (ENV).
